    Flashed last night, charged full around 8pm.
    Did lots of browsing, not had Pandora yet (that's this afternoon)
    Still at 64% battery
    Interactive gov
    122 min / 748 Max.
    ZV9 radio updated
    with wifi on all night (went to sleep great)
    I originally had it to 806 Max and as I browsed I could literally watch the battery fade 1% every 5-10 min.
    Like has been stated, every phone and user has different results.
    But all in all, its much more responsive.
    great work as usual!!

    That is normal and harmless. I didn't sign the kernel zip package.

    Oh, okay. Otherwise, everything is great. I'm getting stability at higher clocks, will check on the battery status to see if I get some improvements and report back.

    Thank you!

    Please do your testing using the interactive governor. Thanks!

    Charged my phone too 100% then flashed the new kernel. Interactive governor 122/825. been going strong for almost 18 hrs, with 40% still left ( I have a 3600 mAH bat), no reboots, no lag, very responsive and smooth. I normally use ondemand governor, but think I've found my new (and improved) setting.

    Also, durring these 18 hrs:
    90 mins playing NFS shift
    60 mins playing sniper vs sniper online
    90 mins playing madden 12
    45 mins of online poker
    Downloaded approx 1 gig of music over wifi, and a 700 meg movie over 3g
    30 mins of navigation
    30 mins of pandora
    Several hours of web browsing, both on wifi and 3g

    Sturdy as a rock. No hiccups, reboots, excessive lag, or FCs.

    Another winner mrg666.

    Amazing what youve done for this phone. Makes me wonder how I ever managed to use this phone stock for 2 months...

    That's really odd, I didn't toggle signature an mine flashed fine?
    Ran Pandora 3g for an hour an I'm about -92-95dbm at home.
    Still on my charge from last night at 36%
    IMO, I like holo launcher for ICS. It seems lighter than ADW themed out.

    So, question:
    I've seen this error before, but I'm not sure what it is.
    E:/ audiohardwaremsm72xx (71): parsing error audiofilter.csv
    Its a lib file reference error, but what is it related to?

    signature check is turned off by default. Thanks for the Pandora feedback. Let's also see what Dannemand will say.

    That is probably a typo or invalid code in audiofilter.csv causing a read error. I will check it out but it seems to be a nonissue.

    @Mrg666: My preliminary testing of your new kernel shows that you were absolutely correct: Interactive/122 runs fine so far, and I have not experienced the issues I had when I last tested this a few months ago, where it would get stuck at 122Mhz and refuse to scale up.

    Specifically, I observed the the following:

    1) GUI is no less responsive than it was before with SmartassV2/480 -- which is quite impressive considering the settings. I am not sure it is more responsive, but it was very smooth already.

    2) It uses the entire register of CPU speeds effectively (as shown by CPU Spy) both during interaction and during streaming. It spends considerable time at the lower speeds -- which is exactly what we want in order to save battery, as long as it scales up promptly when needed.

    3) It deep sleeps without hesitation.

    I haven't tested exhaustively yet, but I will over the coming days. I did play Pandora while driving for about 30 mins, and will do some more tomorrow. One difference was I played through A2DP, which I couldn't do last time due to the duplicate Bluetooth address issue. This will have contributed to keep the phone at higher clockspeeds during streaming. Tomorrow I'll bring a cable so that I can test how low it drops, hopefully still without getting stuck.

    Cannot say about battery life yet. I usually got 1.5-2 days on a charge before with 480 Min. This one has to be at least as good, considering it spends time at speeds below 480 Mhz.

    Excellent work, as always!

    Thank you, Dannemand. Such a detailed testing ... this is great!

    Edit: I bet you battery life will improve with 122 min. It did for me.

    Mrg, the kernel is super sweet, browsing, streaming video, music. I did notice that when I turned on wi fi it drained the battery approximately 10 to 12% in 15 minutes and it rebooted once when I tried to run benchmark. After that it settled in, I think the battery drain is due to the min setting I'm running on 480, I'm gonna try 122 and see what happens.

    12% battery drain in 15 minutes and reboot are not normal. I would lower the maximum CPU frequency and check the runaway apps in the background.

    @mrg, rebel: I assume the way interactive remains so responsive, even with a low Min setting, is by instantly ramping up to a high clockspeed (several steps up from idle), then gradually scale back down. Ondemand is the opposite (and Conservative extremely so) and hence not as responsive. Smartass in between.

    A logical following would be that you want a low Min setting on Interactive (like 122) or it's gonna burn battery fast. With Ondemand and Smartass, 480 makes more sense.

    Much of the reasoning behind 480 Min (and accompanying governors) is that since it's the highest speed before voltage starts increasing (which REALLY drains battery), better go straight to 480 instead of spending cycles polling and walking gradually up through the lower speeds: it's gonna be more responsive and use only a little more battery overall.

    But with a sufficiently low min setting (like 122) and Interactive's more aggressive ramp-up, maybe a better balance can be found between battery usage and responsiveness.

    Am I making sense? :o

    Looking at the CPU frequency stats below for the last 12 hours (the phone has been heavily used) and last 5 seconds, it seems that the new interactive governor is working ideally. The phone has bottomed at the minimum frequency most of the time and used mostly the maximum frequency when there was a CPU load. I think this also agrees with Dannemand's assessment. The last five seconds is also revealing that when there is just a light load, like collecting the frequency stats, the maximum frequency is not used as much. So it is not always shooting to the maximum frequency at any load.

    It does seem to not affecting anything, I was also using A2DP. I had the same errors on a bunch of the other roms I tried.
    got notifications and calls perfectly, paused stream, then picked right back up.
    New kernel is definitely an improvement in overall performance!
    with my usage, I've never gotten 25hrs on a single charge with any rom. (22% an still going):thumbup:

    OK, I tried the Elite for a few weeks...failed me miserably! Could not even compare to my trusty ol' OV running Mirage! I returned the Elite and came back to my OV, I have to say that this ROM is the best out by far! Thanks mrg666!

    been using the new kernel since yesterday. it's nice no problem with it on my phone. battery life is a big improvement. I use GPS daily for work and by lunch I would get the plug you're charger in message. used it all day today without having to charge so a steady 10 hours with talk text and maps.good job Mr.g.and thank you for you're time.

    Really? The reviews I have read are usually good about Elite. Thanks for the comments and welcome back.

    It is an OK phone but the battery life does not even compare and other than taking slightly better pictures it is not much of an upgrade from an OV, especially with all the Roms and fixes you Devs have on it. I found my unit would constantly drop 3G and WiFi even under excellent conditions. The deal breaker for me was when I was out and could not connect to the internet (across 3 cities) and my battery draining because of it rendering the phone useless. Maybe I just had a defective unit but I can't see much improvement for me to change my OV. We have two at home and have never let us down.

    Well, thanks for the comments again. But let's not praise this ROM in the expense of the others. Everyone, this thread is for discussing MiRaGe and let's avoid criticizing other's work here.

    Cbucz, I would appreciate if you can edit your post and remove the part unrelated to MiRaGe. I have not quoted your post just because of this.
